Workshop 1.5?

18 Jul 2005 01:06 #1779 by YAGS
Workshop 1.5? was created by YAGS
So, it's been a few days since the last comments regarding the next workshop. I'd consider getting in on it if the topic even remotely resembles any of the stories that I've been considering writing. So when are we going to get the assignment?

Well, Yags, the topic I've chosen for the full-length SGInc Story Workshop 1.5 is:

"An individual/group/organisation possesses/creates/obtains a weapon which he/she/they believe can bring down an ubergirl."

Hope you can do something with that.

It appears we have go for 1.5!

We also need a topic for the first SGInc Single-scene Story Workshop 2.1. Lfan, as founder of the Workshops, please can you pick the topic for 2.1?

As we're overlapping "Short" and "Long" workshops, we'd like to suggest the following deadlines.

SGInc full-length Story Workshop 1.5: Deadline 18th September 2005
SGInc single-scene Story Workshop 1.5: Deadline 18th August 2005.


Lfan, as the man responsible for creating this monster, would you do the honour of officially announcing the opening of the two separate Workshops?

Okay, I will give it a try this time, the theme sounds good to me, I'm thinking of a story in which the female heroine has one weakspot(or two?), which are protected, by some armor, which her enemies are trying
to destroy or breakthrough all the time, but than something changes, hmm, have to think about that part, before I write it down!

Ok, I'm inspired. Not by your topic, mind you, but I'm inspired. :P

Combining the above topic with recent events that have inspired me to come up with a new story idea, I've decided to try something that I'm guessing has never been done in the ubergirl genre: Harry Potter fan fiction. :shock: Be afraid. Be very afraid.

If you're lucky, I won't actually have time to write it. ;)

Got the short or long mixed up and had a really great short scene for the weapon. Oh well, who says a long story has to be as long as my last one!

It's such a good weapon. And I've always wanted to do one of these!

Any one starting thinking about writing an entry for 1.5 (the longer one)? The topic, in case you'd forgotten/not seen it is:

"An individual/group/organisation possesses/creates/obtains a weapon/device which he/she/they believe can bring down an ubergirl."

I'm going to submit the next few chapters of "Randolph and Kim", but I'm only at the earliest planning stages.

I didn't do anything useful for the last workshop...

(Given my unusual internet and computer access currently, I might not be easily able to do anything for this one, either.)

Someone has something that should be able to destroy/defeat an ubergirl (besides another ubergirl). I'll have to think 'bout that.

PO'ed Uber getting back at her ex... same thing.

On a different note, I finally started writing again for a story I started back for Workshop 1.2 "Ubergirl vs. an army".

It's over sixty pages long, and she's not even close to the army part...

I don't think this really covers ANY theme in particular, but I'd really like to get it out on the web for review, editing, suggestions, and commentary.

I'd really like suggestions on how to post this monster, or who to send it to... which of the websites are still active, and who'd be happy to host it for a while.

It's based on one cartoon I found online, and the series of stories about Julie. ( I really liked the idea of going through a long series of scenes as a supergirl discovers her powers, and adapts to the changes they make in her life.) It's got almost nothing in common with Julie other than that idea, though. If it steals from anywhere, it steals from Superman/Smallville... but even that's just a coincidence...

Each section/Chapter is roughly 2 pages long, and so far there's about 35 chapters. The only problem is, it's on a zip disk, and the computers I have access to either don't have zip, don't have internet, or have a problem with the floppy drive so I can't copy it onto anything but a zip disk...

So, no rush, other than my feverish desire to get criticism and commentary.

Any help would be appreciated, telling me where to go. :)

I'm in w/ "WW3.0b". Its 14 pages of scratch I wrote years ago and promptly lost (purposefully lost?). It's embarrassing, cheesy, AND embarrassingly cheesy-- but on-topic. It surfaced today from the swamp that is my backup morass.

"Papa Smurf" rides again... :shock:

I'm in too. Would you believe the topic I chose fits nicely with the next few chapters of Randolph and Kim? Me neither, but it does.

SPOILER ALERT: Kim (eventually) changes into a LIME GREEN bikini.

Sorry. I amn't able to complete my entry for the deadline. I will post it as an indipendent story in the future.
I'm a bit angry because this is my first attempt with the ubergirl genre.

Don't be angry, Anon. Look what that's done for admin...

Just make sure you do post the story when it's ready. I'm looking forward to reading it. Always great to see new stuff out there!


I'm well behind schedule on my workshop entry. Looks like I'm going to have to work through a night or two to get it done on time. Oh well. I can always catch up on sleep at work... :lol:

Ace, I have a painful hangover this morning and now you're totally confusing me. Under 1,000 words? 4 days early? Workshop 1.5 (Theme: "An individual/group/organisation possesses/creates/obtains a weapon which he/she/they believe can bring down an ubergirl." Word limit: None) is due in 3 days. Workshop 2.2 (Theme: "Nobody was getting to me in here....." Word limit: 1000) is due October 15th.

Are you, possibly a MONTH and 3 days early? Or is this a "short" entry to the "long" workshop? And where the hell's the paracetemol?
